Don’t wait for kids to come to your library, discover how outreach encourages students and their families to visit the library, check out books, and attend programs! Librarians from three different systems discuss how they initiate contact with teachers and schools, develop techniques for finding room in busy school and library schedules, and hear about how our programs tell the library’s story through book talks, thematic presentations, and monthly visits. Our focus will be on the practicalities of getting permissions, strategies for scheduling, and ideas for programs that fit into core curriculums, as well as demonstrating how these programs increase program attendance.
